Autumn term 2020-21

Courses will begin on schedule in Autumn and we look forward to seeing new and returning students in person, if travel and visa arrangements allow. If students can’t travel to campus in time for the start of term, the Department has made plans to still provide them a high-quality remote educational experience during the Autumn term.

Teaching will be a combination of on-campus (in-person) and remote learning (online), known as ‘multi-mode’ delivery. For more information about multi-mode delivery, the learning experience and the steps we’ll be taking to keep students safe on campus, please see our Covid-19 information for applicants and offer holders page.

We will update our course pages with further details once they are finalised.


The Department's competency standard for postgraduate MSc and MRes courses may be found in the Physics PG Competency Standard‌.‌

If you need to make a request for mitigating circumstances for assessed coursework (if you missed an examination because you were ill, for example) you can find the forms here for Major mitigation, where you have missed a major item of coursework such as a written examination and for minor mitigation, where you have missed a problem sheet or lab report.

If you have any problems or concerns, you can contact the Postgraduate Administrator, Loli Sanchez Rey.
